A local multi-service hub

Robertson is delivering the Chryston Community Hub, bringing a new primary school and community health clinic to this area of North Lanarkshire.

The new building, for North Lanarkshire Council and NHS Lanarkshire, has been designed with the needs of the community in mind. It will replace the existing Chryston Primary School and provide a health clinic to support the provision of local health services.

The project supports North Lanarkshire Council's wider drive to modernise its school estate and create integrated hub buildings offering multiple services available for the whole community.

Key facts

  • Multiple services offered from one building
  • 509 primary school places
  • 17 treatment/clinical rooms and a group room

A first-class learning environment

Robertson is delivering a new learning environment that will become a driver for educational attainment and increased wellbeing within the community. The naturally lit, flexible spaces will accommodate a wide range of learning requirements.

The landscape design creates seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor environments with all class bases benefiting from direct access to the playground. In addition to high-quality sports facilities, pupils will be able to do a 'daily mile' walk along a route indicated by footprints around the site. Outdoor play equipment also includes bug hotels, allotment beds, and a fire pit surrounded by log seating, offering different teaching and learning opportunities for the school.

Extensive local healthcare facilities

This purpose-built clinic will provide state-of-the-art health and wellbeing facilities close to where people live and ensure local people no longer need to travel to Glasgow for certain services.

The new community health clinic will provide a larger, more modern facility than the existing Muirhead Clinic, which only allows a small range of community health services to be provided locally.

There will be gardens for clinic patients and staff, as well as community green spaces and paths designed to enhance connections across the site and encourage active travel.

Benefiting the local community

The project was procured through hub South West, whose partnering approach is focused on the benefits to both the local community and local economy.

Children and young people, staff, parents and the local community all played a significant role in developing the design for the campus. Robertson worked closely with them to ensure the design considered the local community's requirements and the area's natural heritage and architecture.
